I’m back again here with my Nethserver 7.3 instance.
I would like to say it was easy and I’m now very happy… But it wasn’t and I’m relatively disappointing.
Let’s me explain why… Not to criticise, or devalue all the mount of work done.
But to think about a way to do better, a way to improve the “user experience”
I choose to install Nethserver over a minimal CentOS 7 installation…
The minimal CentOS installation is not complicate, install Nethserver over it isn’t too, but at the end of the Nethserver installation, I think it’s lack a tool to choose what rule for what connection, or in other word, a tool to attribut the rule for each NIC.
By default, the Nethserver install choose the green rule for the first NIC ( with by extension this NIC connected to internet )… Is something absurd!!!
Why not make a tool to let the user choose, or perhaps configure all the NIC in the RED rules ( close all) and let the user choose what open when login for the first time?
This way, I was obliged to jungle with my to NICs to make, and a client to configure one by one each nNIC, apply the change… until having success.
My second thought when I login for the first time was a great deception:
One the left bar, there’s four useless menu entry!!!
Applications, for a minimal install there’s normally nothing, the users and groups, the account provider entry, and the domain account entry…
It’s a bare minimum installation and I have already useless menu left entries
When clicking in the domain account, users and groups, I systematically go to the Configuration/account provider entry…
So, Let me ask this: Why theses items, this stuff already exist on a bare minimum installation?
The final though is certainly a little bug… I don’t know how it’s happen… But I loose something in the CSS of the interface( difference between the first screenshot and the others)… look the upper bar, and take a look in my dashboard:
What’s happen? How to “reset” and come back to the normal dashboard?
Edit: For the last question, I flushed all the safari caches… It’s now okay
